I also checked out the fire exits. Chairs left in stair wells and an apparent lack of working lighting inside the lower stair wells, would still leave a question in my mind re Romanian fire safety standards.
The hotel has lots of old world charm but some of the edges are a little rough eg a small double bed with a lumpy older style mattress. Rare to see any staff with a smiling / happy face too. Our room was large and clean and we could open the window (as we had to because the centrally managed central heating is set way too hot) but the olden world tiny bathroom with a shower over the bath but no shower curtain shows too much old world functionality. No in room safe and w-fi only works in the foyer. The foyer ceiling and the ambience of the dining room are very photogenic. Breakfast was ok with the hot food again not kept at a hygienic 60+ C.
The hotel has a perfect location to the old town square.
The Christmas markets there were nicely lit and leave Brasov's efforts greatly lagging.
Yes it is not a Holiday Inn but smiling staff, thicker towels and making the actual fire safety an A+ reality would give it a 5 rating.More
